Bob Egan, a real estate agent during the day, becomes a “pop culture detective” by night. Egan’s PopSpots features images of album covers and television and film shots superimposed on and lined up with a photo of the shooting location as it appears today. Though Egan has researched images that were shot in other places, most of the images he researches have been shot in New York City, with many in Manhattan, a part of the city that is continuously in flux. Accompanying each superimposition are details of Egan’s research, including maps and resources he’s used, such as the New York Public Library’s digital archives, to deduce exact locations based on image details and correspondences surrounding the creation of each iconic image. Egan’s project began with his curiosity of where Bob Dylan’s “Blonde on Blonde” cover was shot, a place he has yet to discover. He has been able to find other Dylan album covers, however, and cites classic rock as his “music comfort food,” something that is not surprising based on the particular albums Egan has so far superimposed. Over time, Egan’s project evolved to include television and film stills, as well as other iconic photographs from the same era.

John David Wilson, who has died at the age of 93, was an animator who will be remembered for working on two of the most memorable moments in movies. The first was the scene in Disney's Lady And The Tramp when the two dogs nibble at different ends of a string of spaghetti before accidentally kissing (Wilson said the strings were fiendishly hard to animate). The second was the opening titles of Grease for which Wilson created animated versions of John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John and summoned up the atmosphere of 1950s America. Together with work on everything from the Flintstones to an animated version of Stravinsky's Petrushka ballet, Wilson's work made him a highly respected and admired animator.
David MacDowell is a self-taught artist living in Virginia. He incorporates media culture, and social themes into brilliant and controversial satirical paintings. Working primarily with acrylics on canvas, David is not afraid of tapping into the dark side of American media worship. He tops off celebrity renderings sprinkled with crying babies, candy colored nightmares, and a hilariously acidic sense of humor. Some have called his work a virtual “Disneyland on acid”. By bravely peeling away the veneer of pop culture, he validates the abused underbelly of society with x-ray glasses. With an ever-expanding list of international clientele, David’s work can be found in Atlanta, California, Florida and New York. MacDowell has shown with Thinkspace Gallery, MModern Gallery, Upper Playground, Alcove Gallery, Compound Gallery, Gallery 1988, Last Rites Gallery, The Alternative Café and many more.
